“One word - yucky!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This room was very gross - the shower faucet constantly dripped, the sheets were very rough and old feeling and the carpet was dirty. My husband and I aren't very picky but even he agreed the room was below par.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Dank, musty smell. Phone inoperable. Light inoperable. Drain not functioning properly. Complimentary "breakfast" had to be complimentary...no one would conceivably pay for this crap. Found out later that we were placed in the "noisy" building; where college students typically rent. Booming "hood" music from the parking lot at 12:30 am...couldn't call management because the phone didn't work. Doors constantly slamming. A door, which adjoins to the next room, was pounded on by the idiot next door. Thought they were trying to break in. We will never stay here again. I'll be writing the regional Days Inn office. I doubt they're aware that such a hotel in their franchise is so far below standard.

Room Tip: Don't stay here period...choose elsewhere.

This hotel is in need of serious updates. The rooms were dingy, smelled like mildew, and mold was growing on the bathroom ceilings. We had to switch out of our first room because it smelled like urine. We called the front dest for an iron and ironing board and someone told us to come down and get it. The cloth on the ironing board was covered in stains. Positives were that the staff was friendly and the beds were pretty clean. I've stayed at several Days Inns and they have always been fairly nice. I suppose I should have been tipped off by the $50 price tag.
